Outlook .prf deployment

Hi There,
I want to deploy a prf file to our existing Outlook 2003 users, it contains a few changes such as the enabling of cached mode and a default autoarchive location.  I've tested the prf file using the command 'outlook.exe /importprf \\castle\pmaapps\MS_Server_Tools_and_Updates\MSWindows2003\PMA_Login_Scripts_&_Files\Outlook_PRF\PMA_Outlook_Profile.prf'

This all works fine, but I want to roll this out silently to our users without opening Outlook.  Someone has mentioned using .mst files does anyone know how I would go about doing this?
